Matchmaker / Promoters

In the USFL, the responsibilities of a Matchmaker and Promoter can be held by the same person.  As you excel in the sport, you see more definition between these roles, especially as the size and competitive nature of the league increases.  In general, the Matchmaker is the person who works to pair up athletes for competition.  They are the ones that look at the weight class and strengths of the fighter and work to align them to a competitor that is fairly matched to their skills.  The Promoter is the person or organization who is sponsoring or hosting the event and coordinates all officials to conduct the event within local guidelines.
